Push notifications


Janner

Question

Is anybody else receiving push notifications on their mobile informing them that a particular stock/commodity/index is up by x%?

 

I am not aware that I asked for this information and am finding it very irritating (as well as using my data allowance). 

 

I have opted in to push notifications for when positions I have set up are automatically opened or closed and for price alerts that I have set up for myself. 

 

I accept some people may welcome this service but not all of us do.  Anyone know how to turn this annoying new "advice service" off?!!

hi Janner - go to "my account" tab and select "settings" from the options in the window that displays. The second heading under "settings" is "notifications" - if you click there it brings up your preferences, just "un tick" the boxes you don't want. When finished, remember to click the green "set preferences" box

 

Happy days

Hi,

 

This is a new type of push notification we have been working on, which alerts you if a market in your watchlist has moved a certain threshold, with a maximum of one alert per week overall. We actually have disabled them for the moment as there were some functionality issues which we're currently making improvements to. You will always be able to manage your notification settings through the platform and I will pass on all your feedback comments to our team developing these notifications.

Hi,

Could someone give me a steer how you turn these notifications off on the IG iPhone app - I can't seem to locate the right screen on the latest app.  I just want notifications for alerts that I manually set and not random alerts (i.e. for major moves up or down on a market that may or may not be on one of my watchlists).


Thanks

I've the same problem, I receive these annoying alerts every time a certain market is up/down by a certain % and I want to be notified only when positions are automatically opened.

I asked for IG support and they answered to check all those settings I've already checked and disabled on both old/new platform, without success:

Account –› Settings –› Notifications

Calendar –› MacroEconomic events

 

I then asked if those alerts are related to the markets that are on my watchlist

and I got an other vague and pointless answer:

It's not possible to target alerts better.

 

So what's the point of those alerts?

The obvious answer at this point would be:

to encourage clients to operate more!

    • In this week’s Trading the Trend, Axel Rudolph FSTA looks at the downward trend of the German DAX, going short on the bounce to 12,300, with a stop-loss at 12,940 and a long-term downside target of 11,500. ig        
    • BRITISH POUND TALKING POINTS: GBP/USD was in a difficult spot earlier in September and the problem has continued to devolve. It’s a negative feedback type situation around the UK and the British Pound with a collapsing currency leading to surging bond yields which led to a BoE intervention effort that’s led to more currency collapse. It’s a painful feedback loop that hasn’t yet stopped. Is there hope on the horizon? And is this a problem that will be relegated to the UK, as it has similar hues to problems being seen in Europe and the United States. The current backdrop is messy as bonds and FX are screaming panic and meanwhile, US equities look relatively calm. I discussed this at-length in yesterday’s webinar. The British Pound collapsed last week, or so we thought, only to open our platforms this week to see what a collapse in a major currency actually looked like. GBP/USD has set a fresh all-time-low and perhaps more disturbingly, in the days since, price hasn’t really rebounded much. Sellers are still hitting the pair and now there’s other dislocations that are taking place.   The UK is faced with a similar problem as Europe and the US with extreme inflation. All three Central Banks were rather calm as inflation built through much of last year but this year, as inflation continued to run-higher even after initial tightening efforts, worry started to show given that central bank efforts were not only unsuccessful but also appearing to bring on even more problems.
